The most prestigious wool is called “superfine”, which possesses an average fineness of less than 19.5 micron (or 19.5 thousandths of a millimetre) and amounts to a mere 15% of annual production.
This both reconfirms Zegna Group’s longstanding support of the wool industry and allows for fully integrated production of our ACHILLFARM™ Merino wool from sheep to shop. There are about 10,000 sheep on the 2500-hectare farm, all of which are raised in the open according to modern grazing practices, as the Group cares for the environment and well-being of its animals. Our sheep have become an inseparable part of Zegna Group’s world, producing prestigious ACHILLFARM™ fabrics. From our farms in Australia to mills in Italy to our stores worldwide.
The conditions of the Australian plains produce some of the most sophisticated fabrics in the world. It’s here that herds of Merino sheep quietly graze on the best pieces of Australian grassland. Owning the Australian wool farm ensures the highest quality control over the materials and the end product. ACHILLFARM™ has six generations worth of wool expertise to produce the best Merino wool.
